Neuropsychology of Addiction: Beyond the Substance

Our speaker will be Prof. Chris Chandler, Head of Psychology, School of Social Sciences and Professions, London Metropolitan University

Many neurobiological theories of addiction have identified that drug addiction is subject to learning and the changing in cognitive processing. Many of these theories take their position from animal studies which demonstrate how important environments are in the development, maintenance and relapse of substance use. From this perspective, we have looked at how information processing that is specific to the drug that is being primarily used is altered as a consequence of repetitive consumption. This presentation will focus on what we have found and where we want to go next.

Everybody is welcome to join us online.
